It is known that the number formed by the last two digits of N when divided by 9, yields a remainder of 3.

Abe makes the following statements, precisely one of which is false:
1. N divided separately by each of 2, 4, 6, and 8 yields a remainder of 1.
2. N divided separately by each of 5 and 7 yields a remainder of 2.
3. N divided separately by each of 5 and 11 yields a remainder of 3.
Determine the value of N from the above statements and given clues.

Looking at the last digit mod 5 only 57 and 93 remained.

checking for hundreds:

457 and  993   both qualify

The statement "Abe makes the following statements, precisely one of which is false:" is a false statement.
